A quick hint from @QR16:

Its an old word inherited from Germanic.
From Dictionary.com
Ferly (n. 1. Something unusual, strange or causing wonder or terror.)
2. astonishment; wonder.

Thanks for that. This is the first result I got…
ferly.
And my head exploded

Well, that’s unusual and strange, indeed. I hope it isn’t causing too much wonder and terror…

Btw. dictionary.com even made “ferly” the word of the day in 2018.

And there’s even a poem.

(I have to admit, however, that I have no idea what Robert Burns is writing about.)

Most people don’t. He was Scottish :upside_down_face:

Actually, when I think of the #1 app for intimacy and women’s wellness, this makes sense -

but I’m just some dumb guy…

“Unbelievable!”


Open. Everything was existing/downloaded, except for the little monkeys.

Didn’t really have any good ideas for this theme. So, being as very few people would understand the theme, I made a render which very few people would understand. But it is definitely ferly.

Lina and the ferly thing.


Non-Competing

Lina was not afraid of the ferly things. Many were but she found wonder and amazement in them.

B3.6. Cycles render.

  • Blocks and Ball is something I modeled a long time ago. Used in this challenge.
  • Lina is a genesis 8 character from DAZ. Her clothes are also from DAZ.
  • HDRI is lilienstein_8k.hdr from polyhaven.com CC0.
  • Grass is a particle system.

When The Sun Vanished


Pure

Given how astonishing it is to witness a total eclipse in the modern day, can you imagine how terrifying it would be to see one in pre-modern times, without full knowledge of what it was? Having day suddenly turn into night would be truly ferly.

This was fun to make. Everything except the moon is a plane with procedural textures.

@QR16, by the way, this was a really fun and creative prompt! We should definitely do more with archaic words and phrases, as they open up a lot of interesting interpretations.

I note that the monkeys are reducing their “input sensors”. Something that can definitely cause terror when driving… :sweat_smile:
